Weather resistant gilet cut for women cyclists
Windproof and water resistant, the Women’s Classic Gilet II is perfect for cool mornings, on brisk descents and as a barrier to seasonal showers.
Redesigned from the ground up with a new stretch fabric and a more streamlined construction, the gilet now uses a fabric that is 30% lighter than our previous version. A bonded hem provides even further weight saving and an updated fit offers improved freedom of movement and comfort.
New, stretch mesh panels on the sides and centre of the back of the gilet are designed to increase ventilation and airflow, keeping you cool even during your hardest efforts.
Rider-inspired details include a full-length, offset zip for draft-free layering with a soft fleece chin guard to prevent chafing, and a lockdown puller to eliminate rattle.
A low-profile bonded chest pocket with a bonded zip keeps small valuables secure, and reflective elements on the back and sides offer an element of visibility. When not in use, the gilet packs down small enough to easily fit into a jersey pocket and a long-cut back with a dropped tail protect from road spray.
“The recent warm weather yet strong winds provided the perfect conditions to test the Rapha Women's Classic Gilet II. Rapha says it is designed for milder weather and it certainly proved the perfect extra layer to keep out the wind chill, just as it intended.”
